Well, I could say opera - I mean it is a bit difficult for me to believe that some people love that godawful caterwauling - but I just shrug and move on with my life. No one gets everything. There are some things I just do not get and never will, and that's fine. I acknowledge that it's good stuff and has artistic merit and that many people genuinely love it, but it is not for me.

I'm really a bit disturbed that some people seem to actually believe that some art that I absolutely love, like the painters Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, are some kind of trick or con and that nobody really likes that stuff and I'm just pretending to love it so that a bunch of strangers on an internet forum think I'm an intellectual. But, there you go, not everyone gets everything. It's OK to not get something. That doesn't mean it's a con.
